Highlights include a 1929 American LaFrance Fire Truck, one of the only indoor coal pits known to exist in the United States, an operational fire alarm system with neighborhood boxes and ticker tape machine dated back to the early 1900's, and a piece of steel from the North Tower of the World Trade Center presented to the museum on the 10th anniversary of that tragic event by members of the FDNY.Plan to visit Key West Firehouse Museum and other customer-reviewed, writer-recommended Key West attractions using our Key West online trip itinerary planner.
Key West Firehouse Museum reviews
I learned alot about Key West by taking a tour here. Very interesting artifacts from Key West history. The staff was a wealth of information. more »
We had very informative tour with ex Fire Chief Castro. You could tell he loved his job there. Lots of history here in this building, and he did a great job of presenting the history of the Key West..... more »
Great museum with tons of history. The gentleman giving the tour worked at the house when it was active. Their knowledge, memories, and banter made the perfect tour experience. Don't forget to smell the Key Lime leaves when you're there!
Mixed feelings on this one...one gentleman was very nice and would tell us the kids could play or touch something then another guy would yell at them to stop. This happened multiple times. I would not recommend this place if you have kids. Which is so sad since my 4 yo loves everything fireman.
